That Time When We Had a Huge Fight in Front of the Kids

That Time When We Had a Huge Fight in Front of the Kids

Yes, we fight. We’re not the picture perfect couple. Sometimes we even fight in front of the kids. And when we do — we also kiss and make up in front of them. Alex and I don’t fight a lot. We fight, but since we started couples therapy it’s been so much better. I think […]

Matt Mason: co-parenting with ex-wife and future husband

Matt Mason: co-parenting with ex-wife and future husband

The story of Matt Mason from Wisconsin is very interesting: He was married to his high school sweetheart before coming out as gay, and by the time they decided to separate (in good terms), they’ve already had three kids. How did he come out to his 11-year-old son? and how him and his now fiancé […]

That Time My Husband Went on a Three-Day Working Trip Out of Town

That Time My Husband Went on a Three-Day Working Trip Out of Town

I worry I whine too much about how hard it is to take care of two babies (now toddlers), especially when for some parents it seem like a piece of cake. I think that to some extent the pain and suffering Alex and I are experiencing is related to the fact that both of us […]

This Parent is Broken: There Are Days When You Just Want to Return Them

I had a great idea for a blog post. It’s been circling around my head for a few days now. But just as I opened a new document and was about to type in the first word there was a knock on my home office door. It was our nanny. “Hi, sorry to bother you […]

Tip: Night Off!

Tip: Night Off!

Parenting is hard. It’s so hard that from work to kids (to gym) to sleep you can’t believe how fast the week has gone by and you did nothing but slave away at what can feel like an endless routine. Remember when we had friends? Especially friends who didn’t have kids? Remember sitting around talking […]

How We Got Our Babies to Sleep Through the Night

How We Got Our Babies to Sleep Through the Night

Both Alex and I are very organized people. Before the kids came along, our days were pretty much regimented. We had our jobs, our workouts at the gym, our nights out and our lazy time in front of the TV. After the pooping-eating-sleeping bombs dropped in our house, we tried as quickly as we could […]

Navigate the Sea of Baby Toys

Navigate the Sea of Baby Toys

I remember the day when I finally realized that the two poop-machines in the house need entertainment too. The first three months had pretty much passed with a couple of knitted rattles, and a lot of music and singing my childhood’s pop songs to their faces. But now they’d started moving and we wanted to […]

List: What NOT To Buy for Your Baby (or: How To Save $500 When You Shop For Your Newborn)

“You need this and this and that,” “You MUST have this,” and all sorts of recommendations from friends before we brought our babies home sent Alex and me on a 2-week shopping spree, spending hundreds of dollars, as if we were just about to bring home another spoiled Kardashian kid (and as if we had […]

How We Kept Our Sanity After Babies Were Born

How We Kept Our Sanity After Babies Were Born

There’s a growing theory by celebrity gossip-lovers that celebrities getting pregnant with twins is no coincidence. Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Rebecca Romijn are on the twins list, and then there’s the recent celebration of Beyoncé and George Clooney’s (separate, of course) twins announcements. That’s an awful lot of twins. The theory banging around is that […]
